Make a Plan for Clean Eating

Clean eating is all about consuming food in its most natural state. It’s about avoiding processed foods with dozens of man-made ingredients. It’s about bringing the goodness of organic and home-cooked food with you wherever you go – for yourself and for your family. Make a clear plan for clean eating – it’s a gift to your whole family.

Tip #1: Eat 5 times a day

Eat 5 times a day

Eating 3 small meals and 2 snacks per day is a basic tenant of clean eating. It allows your body to generate a constant level of energy all day and avoid the peaks and valleys of fewer large meals. Consuming protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains at each meal or snack helps keep this balance of energy. Plan these smaller meals and snacks ahead.

Tip #2: Always bring your own clean food

Always bring your own clean food

You won’t find much clean food in restaurants or cafes. If you don’t bring your clean food with you, you’ll be forced to compromise. Make a clear clean eating plan for your day. Especially when time is short, like lunch hour at work, packing your own meals and snacks will help you stay clean and healthy.

Some of the greatest family activities like sporting events, movie theaters, and amusement parks are the worst offenders when it comes to the availability of healthy clean food. Bring your own food, and you’ll stay clean.

Tip #3: Prepare and Plan Ahead

Prepare and plan ahead

Clean eating requires a plan and some home cooking. Get a jump on the week by preparing large quantities of protein, grains, and vegetables you can use to assemble meals and snacks throughout the week. Avoid plastic containers – use stainless steel or glass containers.

Plan ahead with these ideas:

  • Roast 3-5 pounds of vegetables on Sunday. Use basic spices (salt, pepper, olive oil) and then add flavors during the week.
  • Prepare protein ahead – meatballs, chicken breasts, or a roast. Freeze extras.
  • Cook a pot of Quinoa or another grain.
Tip #4: Watch your portions

Watch your portions

If your clean eating plan includes losing weight, plan your portions carefully. Weighing each and every piece of chicken is not practical. What is practical is to use containers that naturally hold the correct portion sizes. Check out the LunchBots Uno, Duo, Trio, and Quad. Each has sections that range from a cup to 2 cups. The LunchBots Dips are ideal for small portions of high calorie items like salad dressings, oils, and nuts.

Tip #5: Redefine snacks

Redefine snacks

Tasty snacks don’t have to come out of a bag. They also don’t need preservatives and artificial flavors. Make a plan for clean eating that includes fun snacks like these:

  • Crunchy veggies and dip
  • Homemade sweet potato fries
  • Organic tortilla chips and homemade salsa
  • Homemade bagel chips with hummus dip
